About
We live in a cosy apartment in two floors on the cobbled street Snaregade – one of the oldest streets in Copenhagen, close to the canals. Here, we invite you for Nordic gastronomy, made entirely from scratch and with a true curiosity for new taste experiences and textures. Everything is made from local produce from small-scale producers, and our wine list offers a versatile selection of interesting wines that we ourselves love – biodynamic, organic and conventional wines, as well as natural wine a single glas or full bottle. Michelin Bib Gourmand We look forward to seeing you.
